 I have a touchscreen unit with 1G RAM/8G disk.  After fs-update to 12.1.10
 os9 1.75, OFW just sits at the ok prompt when powered on.  If I type
 "boot", it tries "boot /wlan" and then returns to the ok prompt.  But
 "boot int:\boot\olpc.fth" works fine; it upgraded me from Q4D10 to Q4D13
 and booted into Linux.  The problem persists after a reboot.

 So, the laptop is still in the broken state:  "boot int:\boot\olpc.fth"
 results in a boot all the way into Linux when issued, but turning the
 laptop on drops me at an ok prompt with no complaints visible.
